AUDIO: Proof with J Dilla, 1996 demo

Seems like yesterday I was reading Proof's thoughts on Dilla's passing ..can't imagine a more tragic season for Detroit hip-hop.

Though he may be eulogized in the media as "friend of Eminem," Proof was a major player in Detroit long before Mr. Mathers brought him pop visibility.. every local I've ever heard from credits him as one of the scene's biggest champions and ambassadors for the last 10+ years. Here's a track from early on in those years, when both he and Dilla were first working they way up in the game:

    Condolences to his friends and fam, and all who were touched by him.
